Paul Paulson’s guest column regarding the parks bond in the MDJ’s Nov. 4 edition hit the nail on the head. It’s deplorable that many citizens, along with our new millennials and some of our county leaders, have no concept or interest in the need for greenspace unless a baseball is involved.
Could it be that Mr. Paulson and I, along with many others of our generation, are among the few remaining caring citizens that are steadfastly concerned about the right and wrong of our government and its leaders?
Thank you, Paul, for your observations and positive thoughts about the forgotten need and the many promises for greenspace in Cobb County.
It’s regrettable that if it isn’t an apartment complex, commercial property or a gigantic new neighborhood that brings in massive amounts of new property taxes, nothing else or greenspace even matters and it takes a seat way in the back of the budget meeting room.
